Sign in to view read count
Its a daily assault of panic, crisis and upheavals being thrown at us practically 24/7. Listen to the radio, and its gloom and doom. Turn on the TV, and every talking head has another scenario of calamity. Pick up the newspaper, and the headlines are practically screaming disaster.

Its enough to make you wish for some hermitage in the Himalayas.

But musician Edward Weiss has a better idea: Play some New Age Music and beat the stress. As Edward says:

At first glance it might seem a bit unorthodox. Were conditioned by the mass media into thinking if something doesn't come packaged in a pill or combined with a high price tag, it cant really do much for us.

However, its been proven for years in medical studies that music does indeed reduce anxieties and stress. In the early 1990s, Bryan Memorial Hospital (Lincoln, Nebraska)found that music significantly lowered a patients heart rate, blood pressure and respiration.

These results were repeated by studies conducted by St. Mary's Hospital (in Mequon, Wisconsin), as well as recent research conducted by Taiwan's Kaohsiung Medical University, College of Nursing.

When asked if any music will work, Edward is adamant:

Of course not. Just listen to some gangsta rap and youll be wired for sound! Music can and does indeed effect our emotions but you have to pick the right type.

According to Edward, New Age Music is especially good for natural, holistic stress relief.

This type of music just naturally flows, easing tensions, calming you down and bringing you to a different perspective. And thats just listening to it. Actually playing it yourself is even better at soothing that savage emotional beast in all of us.

Appropriately, Edward has introduced an online course that teaches anyone (and he emphasizes anyone) how to compose and play their own New Age Piano Music.

Edward explains:

All you need is the desire, the patience and of course the keyboard. These step by step online video instructions provide everything else. Rank beginners to accomplished professionals will see just how easy it can be.

You'll learn at your own pace, going over each streaming video lesson as many times as you need. Its basically Look, Listen and Learn.

So if this hectic, non-stop 24 hour news cycle world were living in has you climbing up the walls, start to de-stress yourself naturally. What better way in doing just that than in creating your very own New Age Music. Mystical, spiritual and inspired the timeless voice of life itself.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
